I adopt a multidisciplinary, process-centric approach in my practice. I am particularly interested in cultural and natural phenomena such as formation, disintegration, regeneration and lost. In my works, I explore the indexical markings in the material world as they function as visceral connections to their immaterial complexities.
In my recent practice-led research, I re-imagined the cultural artifacts of a hybridised community in Southeast Asia known as the Peranakans, as I explored ideas of absence, memories, and obsolescence.
I am also working on a series of paintings , ‘Secret Visibility - Hidden Nature’. The idea of secret visibility hinges on the notion that our viewing experience always put us at the threshold of knowing yet at the same time there is always an aspect that we will never have access to. These works suggest that what is left undocumented, may speak of a subliminal presence that is beyond human comprehension.
